Whether you are building a new house or doing a major kitchen renovation, it is important to know a few useful information which will help you decide on the final design of your countertop.
The kitchen, being the contemporary centerpiece of every home, requires a countertop which (1.) meets the functional needs of daily cooking preparations and (2.) complements the beauty of the entire area.
A Backsplash is a vertical panel installed above the frontage of a countertop. It has three essential functions. First, it serves to protect the wall from splatters and blocks spills and drips from seeping behind the cabinet. It helps keep both surfaces clean and dry, which, in turn, prevents mold from growing inside your kitchen.
If you are looking for a new face for your kitchen then you may want to consider adding marble or stone counters as an addition to your kitchen. If you are selling your house any realtor will tell you that a clean and fresh looking kitchen will get higher bids on your house. It's simple; a nice kitchen is always refreshing.
Every countertop, regardless of its material, must not only appeal in form but must also achieve its function. Thus, every little detail requires careful planning before making a final decision on the design. Finding the right countertop for your home may look easy at first, but it becomes increasingly overwhelming once you consider all the details.
The countertop's base is another important factor to consider during the design process. A countertop placed over a wooden cabinet typically requires a Laminated edge profile to hide the substrate supporting the slab. On the other hand, when installed on top of a concrete base or a metal or a stainless steel frame, a Skirting is recommended to conceal the structure underneath.
You can build your kitchen from various materials. SAM's or Home Depot can carry materials for new counters. They have a varieties such as marble, which is always a little more expensive, wood and other materials hand crafted steel. With these available materials you can build up a nice kitchen fairly inexpensive. Steel may not always be a good choice because it can absorb the heat of pans and other hot objects placed on them. This can be potentially dangerous you are cooking and others are in the kitchen at the same time. If you choose steel, it needs to be a thin layer so the heat will dissipate fast.
